A fantastic 90 minutes! Such a great way to see the amazing Dubai skyline whilst our senior skipper Asela, commented on the buildings, marina and other points of interest, including the beautiful Atlantis Resort on the Palm and the Burj al Arab. My friends' 7 year old thoroughly enjoyed the experience as much as we did. A decent hat is... More

We jumped onto a yellow boat but one that has flames and stuff on the side and goes very fast. We were 3 families with ages ranging from 5 to 73. Everybody had a scream, a laugh and a load of good fun. We came off the boat wide awake, a bit wet (not too much) and smiling lots. A... More

Took the Yellow Boat 90 minute trip early August on a two day stop over in Dubai. Daniel our 'skipper was extremely likeable and his commentary was informative. It was fast and fun. If you only have a short time in Dubai this is a great all rounder and value for money.

This is a wonderful tour!! The captain/guide is amazing , so enthuasiatic and kind , not many people fit on the boat so you get a personal experience. I think we paid 280 AED each for the 90 min tour. We got to see the best parts of Dubai and the guide gave us so many photo opportunities and was... More

We had a great morning last thurday on a yellow boat tour, safety was really paramount making us very confident with our excellent guide Danny, perfect attention to detail, informative, well worth going. Also we took his advice to visit the 52nd floor observatory at the Marriott hotel afterwards, amazing view and cool down drinks.

We had a fantastic 90 min journey along the Marina and out on the palm passing all the landmarks Atlantis, Burj & Jumeirah beach. We had a few jet skis chasing us for a laugh. Driver very informative telling us all the plush hotels along the way. Definitely recommend this trip maybe do the 75 min next time.

These guys took forever to get us onto the boat, all payment is done there and then so that felt like it took forever. It took about 30mins to actually get out of the marina itself.When the boat did pick up speed it was fun. We stopped at the palm hotel, the burj and a few others. The guy driving... More

A great way to get to see the Burj Al Arab and Palm close up. Our guide Danny was brilliant, passing on some interesting info and taking some great family photos. Highly recommended.

Had a great time. Got the last boat of the day which was at 6pm and proved a great decision as temperature started to drop from 45 degrees so could sit comfortably in the boat and also we got great pictures of Atlantis Hotel on the Palm, the Burj Al Arab and the Dubai Marina as the sun set.

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
